Steam Turbine cooling value?


Recommended Posts

That was the idea yes, but if it's a fixed value it might be better to just leave an opening and a single Turbine to cool the steam until it reaches a stable temperature (somewhere between 252°C and 176°C).

Just ran a test with steam starting at 1000C (easy if you have magma) even with a stack of 4 turbines the end steam was over 800C20180312101211_1.thumb.jpg.54b9456c684fe61ad04919fd29e37a31.jpg20180312101318_1.thumb.jpg.7b64be4b901eddd032db92ac4c4ace83.jpg

Don't have the game to test right now so what if you made something like that :

Would it cool the hot stuff over time or would the steam turbine just don't work because it consider the bottom and top to be connected? What if you add airflow tiles?

there needs to be a pressure difference of 5K from below the turbine and top, your design can still work you just need to automate some mech doors to pump the steam down, and yes it will cool the "hot stuff" this is why a big volcano is helpful in supplying fresh magma

input > 525 Kelvin

output = 450 Kelvin

rate 10kg/s

pressure difference>3kg

It eliminates heat at the rate of 3134kw.

(525-450)K*4.179kJ/kg/K*10kg/s=3134kw

So far, devs haven't changed anything about the steam turbine in ranching, even haven't fixed relevant bugs. So I think the steam turbine will have some changes in later updates.

Note to those that don't read the linked topic that the 3.1GW is the minimum it will delete when it's running. You can make it delete really any amount of heat you like.

So I found out how to make a cooler with a single turbine.

The trick is really simple, I put 500 g (or less) of Hydrogen then around 20 tonnes of water. The water is turned into steam and push the Hydrogen to the top. When the turbine check the pressure difference it finds a tile with really low pressure because gas don't mix in a tile and it will work continuously.

I put 12 tonnes of Magma at 3000°C and it lost around 1000°C per cycle.

It might prove useful to cool down stuff like Metal geysers down to a more workable temperature.
